TRAVEL CALL!!! Noah is coming home!!!!!
It's been a whirlwind of a day to say the least!!! The call that we have been waiting for has finally come! Our baby boy is coming home!!! (And today he is 13 months old!!)
I prayed so hard last night that good news would come today, especially after others that have used our agency bet that today would be the day. All morning I was trying to remain hopeful. You know in your heart that the call will come eventually but at the same time it feels like it will never happen! At 10:57 a.m. I was on the phone with my boss when the call waiting clicked. I started screaming to Priscilla...." it's them!!!! I gotta go!!!!!!!" As soon as I heard the voice of the director of our agency saying, " This is the call!!!!", I started to cry! I quickly got myself together, grabbed a pen and paper and wrote down all of the info. Our Noah Lee comes this Wednesday afternoon!!! When Cecelia informed me that there would be three other families picking up their babies I quickly had to ask about a new friend I have been speaking to on-line for the past month or so. Jodi lives in Boston and got the referral of her son Matthew 10 days after we got Noah's referral. We have been helping each other through the final part of this painful wait and were hoping that our travel calls would be for the same day and place. How amazing that we will both be there to share this moment together!!
I knew I wouldn't be able to get a darn thing done all day today and had a lunch date planned with my friend, Tracey. So.....after making a ton of phone calls I had a really nice afternoon with my friend. As always, Tracey is so thoughtful. She picked up lunch for us, made a delicious pie for dessert and had flowers and balloons to celebrate! She had me cracking up when she told me that she was telling everyone in the deli and stores about Noah coming home!! How amazing and touching to have friends that are just as excited as you!! Thank you, Tracey, for spending the day with me and sharing in this journey!!!
Well, I'm sure the next posts will be lots of photos and videos of our first moments with Noah. Wednesday can't get here soon enough!!
